Secular Education

Q:

As a Muslim living in Dar al-Kufr is it permissible to send your children to be educated in the secular public school system?

A:


Alaikum Salaam

Education in Islam is extremely important and we should strive to ensure that our children progress well in this area and are able to achieve a strong intellectual status, as well as a good career, both of which can make Islam shine in today's world and be a stepping stone for their Aakhirat.

However, education should not be at the expense of loosing one's faith or Islamic principles. If sending your child to a particular school can harm his/her faith or shake his/her Islamic principles, then other options must be looked into.

I pray for the best for you and your family
